Description

This photo was with the Asrock b350 motherboard

Reason I Built It: I had been planning on building a computer since December because my old pc was slowing down and eventually got it's hard drive corrupted (which i discovered later). it was an optiplex 780. I was gonna go with a ryzen 5 1600 + GTX 1050. I was planning on financing parts at a local canada computers in my area but they do not have it yet in my area so I discovered this new ryzen chip.

CPU: i chose this since it was a great budget option. it works perfectly fine playing almost any game that isn't a triple A title at medium low settings with good frames. of course i always try to get as many frames as possible so i lower settings except in shooters like fortnite i max out the render distance.

GPU: I am getting a RSX 560 soon in the mail and when it does i will update the photos. i bought it since the ryzen apu's vega graphics started to crash my system and there are occasional stutters which hurt gameplay like in fortnite.

MOBO: I had originally bought a used Asrock b350 motherboard but it turns out it was defective so the guy who sold it to me ended up giving me a refund. with the $75 I got back i bought this Asus a320m-k board instead. it works perfectly fine but I might replace the motherboard when i eventually replace the cpu for the 1600 or a newer chip from ryzen.

RAM: i was originally going to go with a 8gb kit clocked at 3000mhz but i was barely short (turns out i had like $40 in my savings because my bank automatically saves money) so i went for this ram at 2400mhz looks better anyways.

HHD: I never actually got this hard drive its just that i couldnt find my actual hard drive on the listings. my hard drive was used in laptop i believe and i bought it for $40. it is 1tb as well.

CASE: i was originally going to go with the cooler master 3.1 but I saw the 3 built in fans on this case and thought "wow so much air flow i must get it" also the price being split in half made me buy right after noticing the 3 built in fans. (note: i was building this at my birthday party with my friends and when i finished they were so confused because i had 5 case fans 1 cpu fan and the powersupply also had a fan. my friends endedup naming the pc "The Airplane")

PSU: I bough this powersupply used when a guy on face book was trying to sell his old gaming pc and i specifically asked for the powersupply and he was willing to sell it to me for about $40.

I will add some more photos later on.

Is your Bios up to date? If not is there any way that you could update it. An oudated bios could be causing the issues with your apu.

No i consulted the problem with a customer service helper from amd he told me my apu's driver update messed up which caused crashes daily. but the stuttering is something that hasn't been fixed for me yet.
